What our Clients say about Octofilms

  • I’ve asked Octofilms to fly in some of the most challenging flight conditions mother nature can deliver… whether it’s gusty winds, coastal thermals, thin mountain air or snow storms, Shane and his team deliver flawless footage shot after shot. In addition, their intimate knowledge of copter technology and camera stabilization rigs allow directors and DPs to work closely with Octofilms’ team to develop custom solutions per project when necessary. Team players in every sense of the word, willing to give 110% to get the shot.

    Ryan Staake, Director/Producer at Pomp&Clout
  • Recently I used the services of Octofilms for my documentary film “Feel Rich” w/ The Game. Not only were Octofilms professional in every aspect but they provided big budgeted looking aerials at cost effective rates. Their aerials are more intimate and less distracting to to the talent and landscape than conventional aerial photography. If you are looking for great production value, Octofilms will deliver.

    Peter Spirer: Academy Award Nominated Director
  • Working with Shane “and the gang” was great! I didnt know much about octocopters and Shane and his crew answered all my questions without making me feel like an amateur director. And the shots were amazing! I will definitely be calling them for future projects!”
